thanks for the tip -- i really like the CASEY JONES -- the falsetto is great. it never would have worked in the loud electric setting, but it points to JERRY'S old-timey roots and puts the song in the proper light.... i could maybe see jer not thinking he sounded too good -- but he does great!

this was certainly after his Velvet and Vest Period -- but this performance is all vest, pocket watch and sepia toned train station --- send a telegram anyone?

Yes, they're lovely -- Jerry alone, mostly, working out the songs. Since High Time was performed in 69, I suspect that at least some of the tracks date back into the previous summer. "1970-00-00" is just a handy tag that makes them sort roughly in order.

Yeh! Tastebud is a classic. I also like that studio "Mason's Children" better than all the live versions put together! :D

I love these outtakes. There are a number of them, I've listened to Anthem sessions, Blues for Allan, Aoxomoxoa (original Mix, and Outtakes), a couple from Ace Studios, Mars Hotel, Shakedown rehearsal sessions, Terrapin Station, Wake of the Flood, and these workingman's dead outtakes.

This behind the scenes snapshot thing really intrigues me.
